Bright Eyes COVID-19 Clinical Update

Group Image

Our patients’ health and safety is our number one concern.

We have modified our policy to match the guidance by the CDC based on community levels of COVID spread in Hillsborough County.

  • WHEN COVID LEVEL IS HIGH: We will require masks in the office for all staff members and patients over the age of 2.
  • WHEN COVID LEVEL IS MEDIUM: We will require masks for staff during patient interactions, but masks are optional for patients.
  • COVID LEVEL LOW: We will not require masks for staff or patients - masks are optional. If you would prefer that your doctor and/or optical technicians wear a mask during your visit, please let us know ahead of time and we are happy to comply


When you come to the office please be advised of these procedures:


  • DON’T COME TO THE OFFICE SICK. Please reschedule your visit.


  • FORMS: Please complete intake forms prior to your visit. These will be sent to you via email or text, to reduce paperwork and time in the office.


  • MASKS: All Bright Eyes staff members and patients over the age of 2 must wear masks or face coverings while in the office. This is to protect staff and other patients. If you have concerns about masks, please contact us BEFORE your visit.


  • HAND-WASHING & SANITATION: We ask that all patients and staff wash hands before exams or therapy visits. All equipment will be sanitized between patients. Eyeglasses will be cleaned after each patient.


  • RETINAL IMAGING: Our doctors want all patients, who are physically able, to have retinal imaging every annual exam. This is the best way to evaluate eye health and reduce prolonged close contact. Retinal problems such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal holes, retinal detachment, and diabetes can be more easily found and documented.


Thanks for your cooperation and continued support! This page will be updated as the COVID condition change.


- Dr. Nate Bonilla-Warford, Dr. Beth Knighton, and the Bright Eyes Staff.
